Cook (foot) has been placed on the Packers' physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cook is likely on the PUP list due to foot surgery he had in June. The tight end said he was fully healthy but was likely over exaggerating, and now that Green Bay's medical staff has checked him out it's clear he needs some more time to recover. It's not clear how long it'll take him to return. Look for Richard Rodgers to see a bulk of the first-team reps as long as Cook is kept out.

Cook (foot) recently declared he is fully healthy after undergoing early June foot surgery, The Gwinnett Daily Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though encouraging, Cook's claim should be taken with a grain of salt, as players tend to be over-optimistic when it comes to their own health. Ultimately, the status of his foot cannot be officially confirmed until Green Bay's medical staff is able to check it out themselves. That confirmation may still be weeks away, though, as the Packer's training camp doesn't begin until July 26.

Cook underwent foot surgery earlier in the week and will miss the rest of the Packers' OTAs, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cook was brought in by the Packers during the offseason on a one-year contract to add depth at tight end alongside Richard Rodgers, but the team will have to remain patient while Cook heals from this recent foot surgery. The procedure was described as "preventative" to ensure a minor issue doesn't turn into something serious during the regular season. The team expects to have their 6-foot-5 tight end back for training camp, but they won't rush their newest offensive weapon as he'll be an important piece of the puzzle throughout 2016.

Cook has agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.6 million contract with the Packers, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cook was released by the Rams earlier this offseason after finishing with 39 catches for 481 yards and zero touchdowns in 2015. Now, he'll join the Packers on a one-year, "prove-it" deal in hopes of landing another long-term deal down the road. Fortunately for Cook, Green Bay's lack of speed at tight end makes him a unique target on offense, and a quarterback of Aaron Rodgers' quality is surely an upgrade from any of the signal callers he's played with across his seven-year career thus far.

Cook is on the verge of signing with the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The two sides had discussions earlier this month and did not agree to a deal, but it appears they kept in touch, and have now agreed to contract terms. Expect full details to be announced shortly.

Cook was released by the Rams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

A third-round pick in 2009, Cook hasn't really lived up to a his billing through eight NFL seasons. The seventh-year pass-catcher never topped 700 yards in his three years with the Rams, and while some of that can be attributed to quarterback play, much of that falls on him as well. Cook possesses the athleticism of an elite tight end, but it hasn't turned into production. It's possible he'll find a starting role with another team, but there are also a few better options on the market.

Cook may be released before the 2016 season, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner.

EDGE Analysis

The Rams will save $5.7 million against the 2016 salary cap if they cut Cook, who has repeatedly proven to be no better than a low-end starter. Even with the team lacking other pass-catching options, releasing Cook seems like a pretty obvious move. The free agent class at tight end isn't great, but guys like Ladarius Green and Zach Miller at least offer some shred of upside, whereas Cook has already had plenty of opportunities to make good on his impressive athleticism. He's also a poor fit for the St. Louis offense, with the team presumably hoping to lean heavily on Todd Gurley.

Cook was targeted twice, recording a five-yard reception in Sunday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday was the second time in two weeks that Cook has been limited to a single catch and third time in four weeks he has been held under 25 yards receiving. The Rams close the season against a weak 49ers pass defense, but it would be a shock if the team opts to air in out. In Case Keenum's last three starts, the Rams have run the ball 58.6 percent of the time.

Cook caught a four passes for 64 yards on a team-high six targets in Thursday's 31-23 win over the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

With Case Keenum attempting just 17 passes, Cook was the only Ram to record more than three targets. Despite being a focal point of the offense and turning in an efficient outing, he was still unable to find the end zone, thus drawing one week closer to a touchdown-free season. Cook's Week 16 prospects in that department aren't promising, as the Rams have to face the Seahawks on the road.

Cook caught just three of his nine targets for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The big tight end led the Rams in targets during the blowout loss, but the ineptitude of Nick Foles against the ferocious Cardinals defense led to lean offensive output. Cook has seen his share of targets this season, but he has yet to score a touchdown and is now averaging just over 33 receiving yards per game. Cook remains nothing more than a weekly dart throw, and he will continue as such in next week's matchup with the Lions.
